Angelina Jolie - Angelina Jolie's Doctor Opens Up About Cancer Surgery

Angelina Jolie's cancer doctor Kristi Funk has revealed she created pioneering pre and post-surgery procedures to make sure her famous patient was more than happy with the results of her double mastectomy earlier this year (13).

The Wanted star went public with her medical news at the beginning of the summer (13), revealing she had had both her breasts removed after discovering she was at high risk of developing cancer, and she has spoken fondly of the woman who guided her through the surgery and then helped reconstruct her body.

Now, Dr. Funk has opened up about the mastectomy and how she treated the movie star.

The medic tells news show Extra, "I delved into a slightly more creative mode than maybe I'd ever gone into in my life, knowing that it would be potentially publicly scrutinised. I developed some really new and beautiful changes to both the preparation for surgery and the actual operation."

And Dr. Funk is hugely proud of her high-profile patient, insisting she's helping to save lives by speaking out about cancer and her surgery.

The doctor adds, "She is just philanthropic at the core and she could never keep it a secret and be who she is. She is someone who wants to save lives and she is doing that every day."
